Rebecca Adlington and Victoria Pendleton Pose as Grazia’s New Sport Heroines

07 March 2012

Rebecca Adlington is a girl after our own hearts. After treating herself to a pair of Louboutins after winning two gold medals in Bejing four years ago, she's told Grazia that, come summer, she'll be treating herself to a Chanel bag! We reckon, after years of 5 am starts, cold pools and chlorine-ravaged hair, she deserves a little fashion treat, don't you?

Rebecca, and other sporting heroines, appear in this issue of Grazia in a way you've never seen them before. To celebrate their power, focus and sheer determination we decided to spray-paint them, put them on a pedestal and literally transform them into Greek statues. And because we've done such a good job, and it's a leetle tricky to recognise them, we've decided to play Spot The Athlete. Ready?

1. Medals pending, this sexy lady has the best bod in sport.

2. This rad athlete currently holds the womens world record for running the marathon.

3. The shoe-a-holic who's set to make a splash.


Got them? Here's how they look in reality...

The whole shoot is in Grazia Magazine, out now.
